The Lamb and Goat Walker is used primarily as a training tool to assist you in training lambs/sheep/goats to lead so when it is time to show them, they move in the show ring as you need them to move.
The Lamb Walker itself has five arms, 6ft. long, extending out from the center for a total 12ft. in diameter and allows you to walk five lambs/sheep/goats at one time. All of the moving motor parts are shielded by galvanized metal and the walker comes with five adjustable nickel plated nose loops. There are four legs that extend out from the base and have holes to put anchoring pegs into the ground.

The lamb walker motor is a 1/2 hp, 220v, three phase motor with a converter and a dial for variable speed. The walker can be plugged in almost anywhere with 110V, single phase power and having the converter allows the three phase to run 220V. (It cannot be plugged into a GFI plug nor a generator. The flow of electricity is not consistent enough for the converter box to run constantly.) The rheostat dial allows you to adjust the speed on a scale from 0-10 which is 0 to about 3 miles per hour. The motor turns both ways so lambs/sheep/goats can walk the opposite direction. This motor and converter has the capabilities to start lambs/sheep/goats out very slow and work up to faster pace.
